You do make a good point.
The topic of this thread is such a major generalization!
Which religion are you referring to?...
-Church of the God Anonymous?
-Nudist Christian Church of the Blessed Virgin Jesus?
-Nation of Yahweh?
-Church of All Worlds?
-Church of the SubGenius?
(All actual religious organizations!)
The religion I was raised in was very strict & involved. There was peer pressure to "be good." Yet I rebelled, mostly because I had parents who didn't give a hoot. However, friends make a big difference & I'd say those who are more involved with church gangs have a better influence on each other than those involved with violent or drug-related gangs.
